AbstractThis paper presented a case study concerning students'
e-learning readiness in a tertiary institution in Hong Kong. The study used
questionnaire survey and focus-group discussions to elicit students'
expectations towards using information technology in language learning.
Students' expectations were compared with institutional targets; which
were analyzed through institutional documents and meetings with teachers
and course leaders. The result showed that the characteristics, habits and
expectations of students; though may subject to change with the
advancement of computer technologies; may not always match with
institutional targets. If such mismatch happened, institution/teachers
needed to understand students' IT habits and expectations, on one hand;
and on the other hand, instructional strategies, trainings for teachers and
students are needed to be developed in order to smooth the normalization
process.
